- Environmentally Conscious iPad case- November 29, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As an environmentalist, I love the concept of ocean plastic recycled items coming on the market these days. This Lifeproof WAKE series, 85% ocean plastic recycled iPad case is one such device. Made of hard moulded plastic, this case is designed to protect your iPad from trips, slips and falls. The case is attractive matte black, made of plastic that is really inflexible. The wave design on the back provides ample grip, though I’d have liked more grip. The case is thin and light. I am sure the case is more than adequate in protecting the iPad when accidentally dropped, but there are still things I am not a fan of. What I do not like about this case is primarily due to what I deem is its design flaw. The hard plastic case is impossible to get an iPad 8th generation into it without forcing it. I struggled to get the iPad into the case and then struggled to get it out. When you do get the iPad in, it’s hard to use the buttons on the top (power) and side (volume) as there is no give. This area for one should have been a softer more malleable plastic or TPU or left open. The lack of a screen protector cover is another (something I prefer to have and have on my other iPad cases). I am also not a huge fan of the basic black case. I like colours… That said, it’s a fine case, and it does help protect the environment in its recycled and reuse of ocean plastic, however, its flaws need to be taken into consideration, particularly the difficulty in getting the iPad in and out of the case and the button accessibility.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Environmentally friendly case- November 28, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The LifeProof WAKE case (not sure why they named it that as it doesn’t have a front cover that “wakes” the case when it’s opened) offers good protection without adding much bulk. The case is made from recycled materials so I definitely applaud Lifeproof for trying to solve the plastic problem in the ocean. The case is very rigid which can be both a plus and a minus. The minus being it can be tough to get the iPad in and out of the case. I found it to be easiest when I put one side in then worked to get the other side in working from the top where the power button is, to bottom. It will appear that one corner is not fully seated, but I believe it’s like that to make it easier to remove. If you have limited hand strength this may not be the case for you as it could be tough to get it in and out, for this reason alone it really is a 4.5 star product to me.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Simple and adequate protection- December 4, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product in exchange for my fair and unbiased review. I’ll keep this short and sweet - the LifeProof WĀKE case is made out of plastic that feels high quality, provides simple and adequate protection for drops where your iPad lands on its edges or back, and is easy to install and remove. The fact it’s made mostly from recovered sea plastic is a nice bonus. Keep in mind that you will need a screen protector of some sort if you’re planning on being active or allowing children to use the iPad with this, as it doesn’t provide screen protection. But all in all, I recommend this case for most people with iPads and other tablets that want a simple way to protect their device.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Unique, well made case- December 4, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The LifeProof Wake series cases are really unique in their ocean based plastic construction (and marketing). This is my first look at an iPad case that doesn't have a keyboard and I found that it feels extremely well made and very protective of my iPad without adding much bulk. The wavy back texture is extremely cool and stands out from the crowd. My only complaint is that the case is made with extremely tight tolerances, so it is very difficult to get on and off - to the point that you feel like you could damage your iPad in doing so. For my use case (a tablet that my kids play with) it is totally fine, but for my main iPad I would want something that I could easily swap my iPad into a keyboard folio when needed.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great- November 29, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Lifeproof Wake Drop proof case has a sleek design, is lightweight, and a snug fit for your IPad. Boasts that it is "drop proof" from 1.2 meters (although I'm not going to try it). Case is made from 85% ocean-based plastic making it environmentally friendly! The thin design doesn't interfere with IPad functionality or obstruct any of the ports.The front is open allowing for the use of a screen protector. Backed by a 1-year Otter box warranty for added piece of mind. The Lifeproof Wake is a no-frills design that gets the job done!Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
